Economic Logic: Minimum wage increases hurt the old, not the young

The empirical literature on the minimum wage is really disorienting. While relatively simple theory tells us that a minimum wage increase should decrease labor demand for the lowest wage categories and thus hurt the young workers most, results on the labor demand have certainly not been clear-cut. But at least there is agreement that it hurts the young workers most, right?


Via FifthEstate.co
Michael Sigrist's insight:

A dramatic increase in the minimum wage could in a way hurt some young workers, but it doesn't mean it is not going to effect the old as well.

I can definitely see how older ones would be the ones to lose their jobs, but my main concern with this approach to minimum wage is how this really solves problems? there is still going to be a group out of jobs and money
Hope Schuster's comment, May 18, 2014 3:22 PM
I thought that this was really interesting outlook on the problems that come with the whole minimum wage issue. There are so many takes on the issue that it is hard to have a straightforward opinion.

The concept of special education

The concept of special education | Michael Sigrist | Scoop.it
Special education teachers teach students who have physical or mental disabilities and thus have special needs.

 

Special education teachers teach students who have physical or mental disabilities and thus have special needs. They are a lifeline to children with special needs since children with special needs are constrained in their learning process because of their disabilities. It is just because of the special education teachers that they acquire the basic skills in education and life overall, and may learn to live independently. Special education teachers adapt the general education curriculum to suit the unique needs of each student. 

 

Thus, special education is a lifeline for those students who have special needs. They personally take care of the special needs of the students by modifying or changing the curriculum accordingly to the extent of disability, wether mild or moderate. With students having severe disabilities, they tend to teach such students basic skills so that students with disabilities can lead their lives independently and teach them basiccommunication skills and mathematics. 

Special education teacher assess the strengths and needs of each student and set their teaching goals accordingly. They help develop Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), which outlines the kind of education each student with special needs will receive. Special education teachers need to be calm, patient, organized, inspiring and accepting. Special education students can come with a varying degree of disabilities and from various backgrounds.

Special education teachers, hence, have to be understanding and have very effective communication skills, as special education students have difficulty in conveying their needs and ideas. Special education teachers help the students with special needs to feel comfortable in social situations and be aware of socially acceptable behaviour. 

Preparing the special education students for life after school is an important part of the work of special education teachers as they teach their students some basic skills which help them to live independently. Thus, special education teachers are doing a great service to the nation by catering to the needs of students with disabilities and help them live a near normal and dignified life.

Why Healthcare Organizations Should Add Google+ to their Social Media Mix #hcsm

Why Healthcare Organizations Should Add Google+ to their Social Media Mix #hcsm | Michael Sigrist | Scoop.it

If you’re diligently updating Facebook and Twitter, you may feel like your healthcare organization’s social media is under control. But, if you’re not updating Google+, you’re missing out on a social-search powerhouse.

 

Google+ may not seem as popular as Facebook, which has more than 1 billion monthly users, but the social network still boasts 300 million active users. And, then there’s search—the word Google has become a verb for good reason. Google handles 100 billion searches every month.

 

So, what’s the connection between search and social?

Think about how your news spreads on Facebook. You post something. Your followers see it and some like or share it, adding to the likelihood that more people will see the information. The system relies on you to build your base or pay for ads.

 

The cool thing about Google+ is it does some of the work for you. Content spreads out like a web of expanding interconnections. When you post content on Google+, it spreads beyond your page to your followers’ pages so that their followers can see your content as well. And because of the integration of Google+ with Google search, this could lead to higher search rankings.

 

If your organization has a Google+ account linked to its key landing pages and blog posts, it will show up on the right-hand side of the Google search results page when people look you up. When it comes to search engines, it’s all about visibility. The second someone searches for you, they have the chance to interact with your content and start following your activity.

 

Web developers call this “rel=author.” In English, this means content is related to a specific author through their Google+ page. Here’s Matt Cutts, head of Google web spam, talking about how this will impact search rankings.

US' China dreams may now be a chimera

US' China dreams may now be a chimera | Michael Sigrist | Scoop.it

The first 10 years of Chinese membership in WTO and of trade with the US at almost no import/export tarrifs:

 

Chinese rural poverty rate declined from 10 to 3%

US familiesc could spend an extra $600 a year on cheaper goods

US factory jobs declined by 25%

US manufacturing wages have stagnated

US trade defficit with China $273 billion

 

On the other hand, most of the major manufacturing operations in China serves US companies and buyers. A good portion of the profit made in China comes back to America, while the hard currency earned by Chinese companies and individual ends up invested by the Chinese government in (among other things) US treasury bonds.

 

There are also the worrying aspects of this Chin-American economy. A good portion of American intellectual property is being stolen and huge profits are being made by Chinese business off pirated content.

 

In 2008 China decided that certain industries are "lifeline" sectors, which need to be dominated by the government and protected from competition by preferential treatment. For example, for political and economic reasons, the Chinese government would not allow any other Internet social networking or search companies than the ones it controls and favors to serve the Chinese public.

 

In effect, China is drifting away from the ideal of a world without borders, in which governments do not choose favorites.

The Customer Identity Verification is going to use biometric technology available to identify people. An exception to is rule is that if you are accompanied by a family member that you visiting or if you have an InfoPass appointment.

There are too many people that are getting into our country illegally and it needs to be controlled. We need to lock down borders and allow easier legal immigration.

Haley Abrams's curator insight, March 26, 2014 11:57 PM

I do not agree with this article that data collection is trying to de-humanize our choices. I do believe that people are trying to studying the trends of our population to see how we work as a whole and how and when we fluctuate. I think that this data it interpreted correctly can be very beneficial to our society. I do believe that corporations are looking at why we fluctuate in our behavior they are not just seeing when, they want a better look at why so they are able to better predicate peoples habit in the future and this can help in many ways. For example the start of winter people will tend to buy coat and warm clothes if stores did not know this then they would run out of these items leaving many people out freezing in a snow storm. So I believe that collecting data is a very good idea and is most certainly not a bad policy.

This article was about correlation and causation. They discussed how algorithms given enough data can appreciate correlations without really understanding them.

This article really incorporated stats into the government and even talked about biases in the data and how that can effect assumptions.
